He's Nice, Not Mean & Now He's 13!!

     As you may or may not know.  I have boy-girl twins, Jacob and Kristin, who turned 13 in June.  We knew we wanted to do something special for the kids becoming teenagers.  You can read about Kristin's birthday celebration here, but now it was Jacob's turn!!! 
     While I was keeping the girls entertained, my husband took Jacob and a couple friends to our place in Lexington, Michigan (on Lake Huron). 
These Boys Are Great!!
Who's Birthday Is It...This Guy's!!!
  The invitations were given out...
  On the way up north, they stopped at C.J. Barrymore's for some go-kart and arcade fun!!!! 
Hunter is gaining on you, Jacob!!!!

The boys hung out in the Lake and on the beach.  They went to the Drive In and saw Fast and Furious 6 and World War Z.  Rumor has it some of the boys fell asleep in the truck!  They also went putt-putt golfing and had lunch at the local A&W, which is still the old style drive in type.  The boys also made their way to the country store and made out with lots of penny candy (which isn't a penny anymore!!).  They had fun being boys!
From what I heard, a good time was had by all.  My husband mentioned he was especially grateful (or not) to me for getting whoopie cushions for the boys -- apparently they provided hours of entertainment.  Some things never get old!!! 
 Sadly, this is pretty much the extent of the pictures -- remember Dad
was in charge of this little celebration!!! 
The Golf Dudes
 One of Jacob's favorite gifts was his remote control helicopter...which I didn't
really realize he would be using indoors!!  He assures me that because of his expert flying skills, I have nothing to worry about -- why does that make me nervous!!!??

The Birthday Pilot
 Jacob also made a point of spending some time with a younger friend who
was out of town for Jacob's birthday.  They had some fast food, did some golfing,
and topped it off with a trip to DQ!! 
 All is well with this birthday teen!!!!

I wish I was his friend! I would love a trip to the lake! Ha! I hope his day(s) of celebrating were super fun and now you have 2 teens...I hope you have super fun too! They seem like really great kids, so I'm sure you'll breeze through these teen years just fine!
